Rain rounds are fun because:

1. They don't happen very often here
2. The lines at the tees can't be beat
3. All courses become DG exclusive

Rain has never really affected the actual flight of the disc for me. I tried playing in a poncho once...yeah don't do that. Keeping discs dry is a pain in the ass, but its a small price to pay for a little exclusivity.

no real tips for keeping dry or anything....i'm with the thread starter on the whole just get wet and get used to it thing. gotta say the way the water flings horizontally off the rim of the discs as you release them, especially when there is a heavy vertical downpour, is a pretty cool thing to see.

playin' in the rain Part II

http://www.dgcoursereview.com/forums...playin%27+rain

My Story:
Going into the last round on day 2, I was in 5th looking to place in my first Advanced tournament. Forecast called for rain and colder temps. I did the usual and packed a bath towel and a couple smaller towels. Let's just say the rain got to me pretty bad. Ended up shooting an 87 on a par 63. I wish I would've found zenbot's "playin' in the rain" thread before hand. Some real good points and advice. Let's just say I didn't even place and finished close to DFL. I'm starting Part II for:

1. The Spring time rains are approaching!
2. The old forum was more that 176 days old so posting to it was a no go.

Share you thoughts on mental toughness through the steady rains and standing water on the course. What it takes to get through it and products or routines you use that have helped your drenched rounds considerably?

You can post in old threads. You just check the box that says you acknowledge that it's old.

the best part of rain is a less crowded course
